A developmental study of violence-related problematic behaviors (6)
The present study examined developmentally the differences in self-perceptions between two groups of children with and without experience of using physical aggression and violence to others. Participants were 393 elementary school children (fourth- to sixth-graders), 421 junior high school students (first- to third-graders), and 433 high school students (first- to third-graders). They were classified into two groups (experienced and nonexperienced) based on response to the one question of with and without experience using physical aggression and violence. They also completed seven self-report measures of self-fulfillment, selfish mind, social skills, normative consciousness, aggressiveness, perseverance, and feelings of satisfaction with their daily life. The main results were as follows. Children of the experienced group perceived their social skills, normative consciousness, and perseverance more negatively than those of the nonexperienced group. The difference between two groups in aggressiveness was not significant in elementary school children, but was significant in junior high school and high school students.
